Doing Good Together

A big shout out to all of the community members who are on the absolute front line as health care providers not only in Fort Worth but around the country and the world. There are so many in the FWCD community who are rising to the occasion and doing good for others and giving back to those who are on the front lines. Here
are just a few:
 
Immy Khan ’01, owner of The Lunch Box in Fort Worth, began serving 200 free lunches during the week (Monday-Friday) for those in need, including first responders, health care workers, those who have been laid off or anyone who could use a free meal. Pickup is after noon at the Camp Bowie location. Check them out at facebook.com/eatthelunchbox.
 
Firestone & Robertson Distilling Company in Fort Worth, co-owned by FWCD parent Leonard Firestone, is brewing up hand sanitizer. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau has authorized permitted distilleries nationwide to produce ethanol-based hand sanitizers to address the demand during the COVID-19 pandemic. 
 
Jon Bonnell ’89 has been advocating for Fort Worth local restaurants and helping to get the word out about various options. He altered the menus at his restaurants, Bonnell’s Fine Texas Cuisine and Waters Restaurant, to provide more family-friendly, fine-dining meals. He posts the menu daily, and for $40, those who need a break from cooking can pick up a meal for four between 4 and 7 p.m. or until the food sells out. Folks are lining up at 3 p.m. to purchase his meals.
 
Higginbotham, a Fort Worth-headquartered insurance financial services firm, is purchasing meals from local restaurants that are being affected by the COVID-19 mandates. The food deliveries go to those organizations working for the well-being of the community during this challenging time. Chris Rooker, Board of Trustees Vice President, and Jim Hubbard, Former Trustee, are both on the leadership team at Higginbotham. 
 
FWCD’s 4-H Club has initiated Operation Face Mask for Tarrant County 4-H. Jackson Grace ’23 has made masks to be donated to help those with compromised immune systems.
